The kid was delighted with his effort too.

“Mohinder sir always watches me bat in the nets. He spoke to me about various drills and how to control different shots. After doing those drills regularly, I scored a lot of runs through the covers and got better with my back foot punches. I called Mohinder sir today [Tuesday] and he was very happy with my performance,” Priyanshu told the publication after his incredible feat.
